If you’ve recently married into the military, or you or your spouse has just joined, you may be feeling both nervous and excited about the future. During the adjustment period, spouses take on new roles, adapt to new schedules and learn new ways of handling many of life’s obstacles.

Many service members have custody of, or visitation rights with, children whose other parent is not the service member’s current spouse. Absences due to military service can undermine and disrupt existing arrangements, creating stress on parents and children.
Eligible service members and their families now have increased housing flexibility options when they receive PCS orders within the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii.
If you’re a military parent who has custody or visitation rights for your children, military service can disrupt those arrangements. But you do have rights.
One of the benefits of military life is the unique opportunity to experience life in different parts of the country and the world. A permanent change of station, or PCS, is a fact of life in the military.
One of the great benefits of moving with the military is that you and your family will likely have a number of housing options once you reach your new location. Each comes with different upsides and caveats, so be sure to consider your options carefully and contact the housing office at your military installation to find out which options are available to you at the time of your move.
If you’re planning your next military move due to a permanent change of station, you may be able to receive a dislocation allowance.
Mediation is a less costly alternative to calling lawyers and heading to court. It’s an informal and confidential way to resolve conflicts with the help of a neutral mediator.

When you’re preparing for a military move, having a pet can add another layer of complexity, particularly if you’re moving overseas. But you know the drill: spend some upfront time planning and preparing, and you can ease some of the stress of relocating for both you and your pet.
